What the team is known for

Fieldfisher is a European law firm with a particular focus on technology, financial services, energy and natural resources, and life sciences. Its fraud team increasingly specialises in corruption investigations within companies and organisations, having recently been instructed in a number of asset tracing cases for defrauded corporations. Much of the firm's work is linked to Russia, Ukraine and the CIS region.

Strengths

"I'd put them right near the top for asset tracing-related work. Their ability to come up with innovative solutions in asset recovery situations, replicating tactics usually seen in criminal cases, was very impressive to us."

"The firm is quite innovative compared to others; Fieldfisher embraces technology. The firm is very keen to embed technology and more sophisticated tools into their practice."

Work highlights

Fieldfisher acts for Igor Kolomoisky in respect of a USD2.6 billion claim and freezing order brought against him by Privatbank.

Notable practitioners

Tony Lewis leads Fieldfisher's asset tracing and recovery team. He is a seasoned litigator and a recognised expert in commercial fraud and asset tracing matters. Fraudulent conduct, recovering assets, corruption, money laundering and the interplay between civil and criminal proceedings all fall within Lewis' area of expertise.

"Tony is really pushing Fieldfisher forward to be doing better and more interesting work," according to a leading private investigator. Multiple sources point to having engaged with Lewis in major fraud and asset recovery cases in recent years. A market insider describes him as "a well-respected name in the market," continuing: "Considering the issues we've been working on - which have been very high-pressure for us, Tony, and the client - Tony never exhibits that pressure; he's unflappable and always calm."
